Details: In August 2013, Horizon PCS Ltd were commissioned by SHU to provide QS / Cost Management services on the refurbishment of Arundel House. The University had recently acquired the building, an existing 5-6 storey office block, and intended to bring it back into use for University staff. This was to be completed across 2 phases, with Phase 1 being works to the existing building fabric e.g. roof covering replacement, window replacement, concrete repairs, internal strip out, asbestos removal and re-newal of building services (infrastructure). The project was tendered in Nov / Dec ’13, with the successful Contractor being appointed in Jan ’14. This was Management Cubed Ltd (M3), based in Sheffield. The project started on-site in Feb ’14 and is due for completion by the end of Aug ’14 (approx. 25 weeks contract period).

Details: In May 2013, Horizon PCS Ltd were commissioned by SHU to provide QS / Cost Management services on the Bio-sciences Laboratory Refurbishment in the Owen Building (L8). With our input, the project was divided into 2 Phases to ‘de-risk’ the programme. Phase 1 dealt with the strip out of the existing laboratory and plantroom, which also contained asbestos and contaminated equipment. These had to be removed separately by specialist Contractors. This was carried out whilst the design and procurement of the Phase 2 ‘fit-out’ was progressed. The fit-out commenced on-site in December 2013 and was completed during March 2014. The final account was circa £300k (for Phase 2) and the Contractor was NRC Services Ltd.
